Does anyone recognise this type of fuel filter?
 
See below:

I am looking to find one for the Loyd. I guess its a standard 1930s automotive part.

Loyd Fuel Filter
 
Hi Alistair, it is the in-line fuel filter tucked inside the Loyd chassis, I believe., on second thoughts it would actually be a water trap. Cheers Andrew.

I've never seen one before, but would guess AC brand, based on the steel bowl.
You are doing a great job Al.

filter
 
I like the suggestion of a fuel/water separator. The large nut and drop bail make my think it is designed to be repeatedly opened.

The fuel separator on a VW diesel, for instance (and light aircraft for that matter), is at a low spot in the line and has a small spring valve that bleeds off contaminants.

I'd have said it was both a water separator and a basic filter, if it has no filter capability then there is no filter in the system at all! I guess I had a bit of brain fail. I just checked the parts book and it says plain as day: Amal No31 or alternate Enots Type 1300

I have closed the loop on this to some extent. The owner of the Amal archive sent me the GA of the 31/008 and it is the one in the photo I posted at the top of the thread. It IS a filter.
